About Rob and Mary Beth Comfort

We are actually The Comforts! Hence the name, Southern Comfort. Our year round residence is in central OH.

Rob and Mary Beth Comfort purchased this house in 2013

Why Rob and Mary Beth Comfort chose Norris Lake

It has been a long time goal to own a lakehouse in this beautiful area. The opportunity arose in 2013. It was quite an experience to plan and build this home from the very beginning. Of all the places we have been in this world coming to our lakehouse is one of our favorites and most looked forward to.

What makes this house unique

This Property is Perfectly Set Up to Serve Multiple Families That Like to Vacation Together. You Can Do So Easily With the Various Living and Entertainment Areas. the Double Dock Will Be One of the Highlights of Your Day and Evening. Swim by Day, Sit Under the Stars On the Dock Or Eat S'mores by the Firepit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Easily accessible from the interstate nestled in a quiet cove with still water for swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, fishing etc...This brand new home is completely ready for a large group with multiple areas for grandparents, grandchildren, teens and babies to have their areas to play on the dock, watch movies, play chess or cards on one of the three decks. Lots of room for all to eat together. Kitchen very accommodating and fully stocked. Owner extremely responsive. We had a tree fall and crack part of the railing of the new dock and it was fully repaired within 24 hours and fixed for safe use within two hours. The owner recommended many boat rental places. We rented a boat, paddleboard, wakeboards and tubes from Oasis right across from our dock. They were excellent and very customer oriented. This is the best home for a large group on the lake. The jumping bridge is just our of the cove and marina not far from there. The drive way looks a bit steep but we were able to easily drive our extended length vehicle down and back into turn around with no problem. In the evening we spent a lot of time in the bottom level watching baseball, playing foosball and in the hot tub. Bring your telescope- the upper level of the boat dock is great for star gazing. The stairss to the dock are lit so no worries! We highly recommend this home and will return.

Beautiful spacious lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing Home!! We had a group of 20 people, and the house had plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. Southern Comfort is so beautiful, and the view of the lake from the house is stunning. There were two kitchens in the house, and three refrigerators / freezers, so there was plenty of room for food and drinks. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, silverware, cooking and grilling utensils, even a crockpot. All the bathrooms had 4-6 towels, and the bedrooms were very nice. The house is right on the lake, and the boat slip was perfect for us to keep a pontoon and a speed boat tied up. Coordinating our visit with Rob and Mary Beth was very easy, and they were quick to respond to any questions or emails. We would love to stay here again for our annual lake trip next year! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Great get away

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was open, airy, well equipped, and exactly what we expected. Mary Beth provided all the information we needed to prepare for a week long get away with no surprises. Beds were comfy, kitchen was terrific, the lake was perfect and everyone had a great time. I highly recommend this cabin for those who want to get away from the hectic rush of modern life but still want a few of the modern comforts while taking time to have fun and reconnect with loved ones.

Perfect setting for a family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a magnificent house on a gorgeous cove of the lake! Twenty-one of us gathered from all over the United States and Germany. With nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms, we each had plenty of space. The common areas were spacious and the kitchen was well-stocked. Loved the three decks and the double-decker dock. We had a great time, and took home lots of good memories. We'd love to return sometime soon!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Great home, great location, plenty of room for our group of 24 that included multiple ages and generations. We've had many years of staying at various lake homes and this year brought the comments of "best year yet"!

The only downside was the 15 minute, no wake boat ride to open waters for water sports. The positive to that is the kids can swim in the cove without the worries of boats. If you know that going in, you will love everything about Southern Comfort 1.

We will be back!

Thanks MaryBeth and Rob!

Owner's Response: We like to think of the ride out to open water as the "neighborly" ride as you can wave to all the people in the cove! 😉 We are thrilled you had a week of great moments and lifetime memories!

Great Stay at Southern Comfort I

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family(4 generations!) thoroughly enjoyed our week at Southern Comfort I. There are so many great things to say about the house. Even with 21 of us in the house, there was plenty of room for folks to find some quiet space. Each level has common seating areas and the outside decks on all three levels span the width of the house facing the lake. The upper two levels of the decks are totally enclosed with high railings and close spindles, so it was great for allowing our toddlers to run around with no fear of them falling down a stair. The two level boat dock is fantastic for either swimming or just sitting and watching the swimmers and boats going by. The cove was a beehive of family activity with swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking and boating going on at virtually every dock in the cove. Yet, early in the morning the cove is quiet with only the sounds of nature echoing up to you as you sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The house is well stocked for cooking family dinners with plenty of seating both inside and outside. The covered portion of the upper deck is great for sitting and/or eating no matter what the weather. We were actually hoping for a summer rainstorm so that we could sit out there and enjoy the rain sounds and smells. The only downside for some was the number of stairs down to the dock, a challenge for anyone with mobility issues. Owner took care of the only problem we had during the week quickly and kept us informed of when the repair would be completed(that day). We would highly recommend a stay at Southern Comfort I.
